Tatanka Yotanka; was the first great Native American leader and patriot to be presented.
Ma-ca-tal-me-she-kia-kiak; This great Native American leader grew up in what is now the state of Illinois. William Monroe Wright is the founder of the Calumet Baking Powder company in Chicago, Illinois. This man that was a baking powder salesman, decided to open up his business with one of his new baking powder formula and decided to name it after a apeace pipe that was donated to the lands of what is now called Calumet City, Illinois. A calumet was a ceremonial smoking pipe that was used by Native Americans. Consequently, he placed the a picture of a Native American in the can of the new Baking Powder can.
The picture of the Native American should not be removed from the baking powder can. The image was not intended to offend, or was used in mockery of Native Americans. The purpose of the picture was to compliment the name, which was "Calumet", since they both have Native American background. An innocent action like placing a picture of a Native American should not be accused of offending, or classified as racism, since to be considered racism there must be a motive.
